Using Collages to Sell More Paintings

Pin It

I was a bit tardy in sending out my January newsletter but at least I got it out while the calendar still said January. One of my previous collectors responded to the newsletter as she was interested in a painting.  She also mentioned interest in buying two paintings to hang side by side. She asked for suggestions of any of my other paintings that would compliment the one she liked.

I frequently use a free online program called PicMonkey to create collages of photos. So I used Picmonkey to create these three collages of suggested pairings of my paintings. The end result was that I sold five paintings to two different buyers. You might want to try PicMonkey and create a collage of your own!

My upcoming workshops:
March 17 - 19, Painting in Paradise at the Beach, Ventura, CA
June 28 - 30, Three Days "Painting in Hawaii" in South Pasadena!
Check out the website for our new beach house in Ventura, Ca. I am teaching workshops at the beach and renting out the house. Come stay and paint with me! I have workshops scheduled in the next twelve months in South Pasadena, Ventura Beach, Newport Beach, Charlotte, NC, and Atlanta, Ga. Click here for more information!
